Renovation リノベーション

Today's Konichi-an, the Tatami master has spread the Tatami mattresses in the dining room. The color of new Tatami is beautiful green, but the old one is yellow, actually the new green Tatami does not suit the existing old Tatami in my house, so I requested the master to make it "older" as much as possible. ;) Hopefully the guests will relax and enjoy the old Japanese style house here! 本日の好日庵。隙間だらけだった板間の食堂に、一面畳が入りました!...
